Overpriced, very salty, unprofessional.

I dined there on the 11th Febuary 2014. The food was expensive. Very salty (I am not usually particularly sensitive to this, but...) there is no wine menu and the price was 50% more on my bill the stated. When I mentioned it they were rude and dismissive

Food is good, quite authentic but be prepared to pay for what you get also. The owner I think also takes time to bid the guests farewell and thanks them.

I was here just after the Typhoon, thanks for the Python Giuseppe! I was also here in 2014, I enjoyed the expanded menu the 2nd time. You will not be disappointed.

Friendly and welcoming Giuseppe does one of the best pizza I had outside of Italy. The menu proposes a rather large choice of meets and vegetables (plus pasta...) and the chief tries to accomodate for special demands. Certainly one of the best places into town. Highly recommended.

We were having dinner the day before the super typhoon Ruby struck. Excellent Italian food. Only the flat house-wine (red) was disappointing - in Europe an Italian restaurant would be proud to offer a decent wine to good price.

The food is really good, they have nice wine, maybe too many white (I am one, and racist) people for my liking but well worth a trip!!

Giuseppe's is a wonderful restaurant in downtown Tacloban. A favorite of the NGO community and locals alike, their pizza is second to none. It is hard to go wrong with any of the food here. Perfect for an evening out with friends and family.

What can I say except WOW. The food here is superb and the owner Joseph and his staff are wonderful. This was easily the best pizza I ever had in the Philippines. The restaurant is nicely decorated and it's easy to see why it's so popular with expats and locals. I only went here on my last night, but this... More

Spent one evening in Tacloban on a business trip... Colleagues based there suggested to go at Giuseppe's for dinner... The town was still recovering from the cyclone Yolanda and I was not expecting much. But what a surprise! Great place and great italian food!
